.DISCUSSION...RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL MAKE A SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT THIS
AFTERNOON BUT WEST WINDS WILL INCREASE AND BE STRONGER THAN THEY
WERE ON WEDNESDAY AS AN UPPER LOW MOVES INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST.
THE AREA WILL BE ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE LOW, SO IT WILL NOT
PRODUCE ANY RAIN. BUT IT WILL BRING COOLER TEMPERATURES AND HIGHER
HUMIDITY ON FRIDAY WITH BREEZY WEST WINDS. A THERMAL TROUGH
WILL BUILD ALONG THE COAST FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THE WEEKEND
BRINGING A WARMING TREND WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE OFFSHORE EASTERLY
WINDS AND BELOW NORMAL HUMIDITY RECOVERIES.
